Story

On the 17th August 2014 my son Archie was born by emergency c-section after my wife and I went to the day unit at Princess Ann Hospital with reduced movements. The medical staff could tell that Archie was in distress and needed to be delivered immediately. When he was born he was very poorly, having inhaled meconium and had been starved of oxygen. The condition was called HIE and the decision was made to treat Archie with a technique called therapeutic hypothermia, also known as 'cooling treatment' where the baby's body temperature is reduced for 72 hours in order to prevent brain damage and then the baby is warmed back up again. Without this amazing treatment and the wonderful care from the staff at the neonatal unit at Southampton's PAH Archie may not be the perfectly healthy little boy he is today and we consider ourselves incredibly lucky that this care was available and Archie made a full recovery. Since Archie's stay in the neonatal unit I knew that I wanted to do something for charity to raise money for the unit, so this is why I have signed up to do the London to Brighton cycle. I would love to give something back to them, for saving our little boys life. So please sponsor me to help achieve this.
